Aug. 2, 2013: Low-Charge Ammonia Refrigeration Systems Introduced

Products Include Ammonia Chillers and Freezers for the U.S. Market

GLASGOW, Scotland — Star Refrigeration has introduced its range of low-charge ammonia chillers and freezers — the Azanechiller and Azanefreezer — that the company said are specifically designed to meet the needs of the United States market.

Derek Hamilton, design manager and U.S. business development manager of Star Refrigeration, said, “Azanefreezer and Azanechiller are complete refrigeration packages that tackle the environmental, legislative, and economic issues facing users of temperature controlled storage facilities. The factory-built packaged design eliminates the need for costly plant rooms and lessens site installation time by around 70 percent, saving the customer both time and money. Studies indicate a 10 percent to 20 percent improvement in energy efficiency, lower capital cost than ammonia pumped circulation, and paybacks within four years when compared to HFC condensing unit technology.”

He continued, “Using the latest aluminum heat exchanger technology coupled with Star’s unique low-charge, low-pressure receiver design results in high-efficiency ammonia systems with a minimal ammonia charge.”
